Frequently Asked Questions
1) What happens after I purchase the program?
Upon purchasing the program, you will have immediate access to Module 0, which covers some very basic terminology you should know before beginning law school, and before beginning the program. You will need to print out the workbook associated with Module 0. Coach Angel recommends finding a quiet space to complete this foundational module. It is not "intense," but it does cover the fundamentals of law school, so you want to give it your undivided attention.
Also, within 24-48 hours of your purchase, you will receive an email directly from Coach Angel asking for your physical address. This is the address we will use to ship your course materials (i.e., the Course Workbook, Writing Guide, and a paperback copy of Harvard and Hardship: A Beginner's Guide to College and Law School).
Lastly, the program will begin on June 2nd. Coach Angel will release the modules weekly, and program participants will be invited to attend exclusive office-hours. Participants will also be able to schedule their complimentary one-on-one session with Coach Angel beginning June 2nd.
2) What are the lessons like?
Pre-Law Summer School consists of 10 modules that each cover a major portion of the law school experience. Each module consists of 3-6 lectures. As Angel explains basic legal jargon, concepts, and how to start off strong in law school, students will take notes in their workbook. (The outline notes are pre-typed in the workbook; Students need only to "fill in the blanks" by copying the text when it is displayed on the webinar screen.)
Also, students will have occasional reading assignments from the Writing Guide (the textbook), as well as from supplemental materials such as case excerpts.
3) How will I receive my course materials?
All materials are included in the cost of registration and will be shipped to the physical address you provide. However, at the moment we are not able to ship to destinations outside the continental U.S.
*The Course Manual is a physical workbook.
*The Writing Guide is a physical textbook.
*Supplemental materials (such as excerpts of case opinions) will become available for download once students log in to begin a module.
*A paperback copy of Harvard and Hardship: A Beginner's Guide to College and Law School will be shipped to students who enroll.
4) When do classes begin? How often do they meet?
Enrolled students will have access to the course immediately upon enrolling. However, courses are slated to start starting May 30, 2023. Although the lectures were recorded in a local studio in Tampa, FL, Pre-Law Summer School is a virtual, online program. Although there is a suggested schedule to follow, once the modules are released, you are able to complete them on your own time, at your own pace, from the comfort of your own, chosen location.
5) How long is the course?
8 weeks. However, it is self-paced, so feel free to go as fast, or as slow, as you please.
6) What are office hours?
Office hours are live small-group sessions where Angel will answer questions about the course material. They are held weekly. Enrolled students will receive a schedule with specific dates, times, and virtual location for the office hours.
7) For how long do I have access to the course?
Indefinitely. The hard-copy course materials (i.e. the workbook, Writing Guide, and the copy of Harvard & Hardship: A Beginner's Guide to College and Law School) are yours to keep. Also, once you enroll in Pre-Law Summer School, you will have access to the webinars indefinitely, thereby allowing you to watch the replays as many times as necessary throughout every phase of your law school experience, from the summer before 1L to the summer before you sit for the bar, and beyond (if your heart so desires).
8) I won't be starting law school right away. Should I enroll in Pre-Law Summer School now, or wait until the summer before I begin law school?
Although Pre-Law Summer School will open enrollment again in the future, it is highly doubtful that future registration will be offered again at the current rate. (The current rate is a promotional incentive.) However, once you purchase the program, you will have indefinite access to the course content. Meaning, if you purchased it at a promotional rate, if future registration is offered at a higher rate, you will remain "enrolled" in the system and have indefinite access to the modules. Also, you will be shipped the course materials with the current cohort, thereby allowing you to leave your course materials on the shelf until you are ready to begin the program.
9) Will my payment information be secure?
Yes; Harvard and Hardship LLC neither handles nor processes your payment information. The platform we use to host the webinar (“Teachable”) uses 128-bit encryption to process your payment.
You can also choose the PayPal option at checkout.
10) I chose a payment plan. When will my payments be processed.
The payments are processed monthly, on the same day each month. So, for instance, if you purchased the program on April 1st, then the subsequent payments will be automatically processed on May 1st and June 1st.
11) I purchased the program, but now I changed my mind. Are refunds available?
No. Because the student is given immediate access upon registering, course registration is non-transferable to other products or services offered by Harvard and Hardship LLC.
Also, please understand that this is a small business. Once you purchase the course, we order your program materials (i.e., the books).
12) Is Angel available for one-on-one coaching?
Kind of. :-) I accept 2-3 people/month for law school admissions consultations (i.e., to craft strategies for personal statements, diversity statements, resumes, etc.). However, I will not be accepting new clients until August 2023.
